A sea lion that's seen swimming in waters around Old Sacramento has apparently swallowed a fish stringer.

Witnesses said the sea lion wasn't doing well when they saw the sea mammal out on a dock Monday near Joe's Crab Shack.

The witnesses said they often see the sea lion in the same spot.

Witnesses said they called the California Department of Fish & Game, the Sacramento Zoo, the Coast Guard and other groups about the sea lion. So far, nobody has shown up to help the mammal.

The Marine Mammal Center said it would send someone to look at the sea lion, but not until Tuesday.

Sea lions have been spotted this year at the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers.
